Easy Deep Dish Veggie Skillet Pizza Recipe

Friday, October 30, 2015
What do you do when you have the best whole wheat pizza dough recipe?? You bake a pizza!! Simple as that!! But not an ordinary one, presenting a very Easy Deep Dish Skillet Pizza with step by step instructions!! Just make them at home already!!

I will guide you exactly as how you could replicate the famous Chicago style Deep Dish Pizza at home, with fewer calories of course and this being a veggie loaded pizza is another bonus.
If you have never had a deep dish pizza, you must, at least once in your life time. The first time i tried them was while in Boston from an amazing local Italian Pizza joint. It was just fantastic and costly.

This is my version of a deep dish pizza. You could add as many or whichever toppings you wish to. I preferred to make this veggie pizza as we had lot of vegetables at hand, plus you all must remember the sad story of my non meat eating husband(Grrrrr......)

Just make sure to have pizza dough handy for quick pizza or you could very well start from scratch also.

 I often make pizzas in my Cast Iron Pans, it is just amazing how evenly they heat up and help in yielding such good crisp crust. You can checkout my Cast Iron pan here.

Let's get on to the recipe:


Pizza Dough
Pizza Sauce(I used store bought)
Few basil leaves
Fresh Mozzarella grated - 2 cups
Cheddar cheese grated - 1 cup
Roasted Veggies* - 1.5 cups


1. Preheat oven at 425 F. Spread the dough evenly in iron skillet or pan. Spread cheese as first layer.

2. I have roasted veggies as i feel they taste much better in a pizza, than the raw ones.

3. Spread the pizza sauce evenly and last layer of cheese. Bake for around 14-16 minutes. Garnish with basil leaves. Serve hot!

1.For roasting veggies, heat a sauce pan, add olive oil and on high heat roast broccoli, garlic, onion, peppers, mushrooms etc for 2 minutes.
